The Boy Detective Fails
Author
Joe Meno
Review
A feel good book; in that the events within will make you feel good about your own life.
It follows the story of a man who used to solve crimes with his sister, until she committed suicide.
After leaving a mental institute, he attempts to rekindle his detective skill by investigating the death of his sister.
A great book to delve into the world of someone who's lost sight of the meaning to their life; and filled with wonderfully dry humor.  Reserve a copy!
